Welcome to the official website for Colchester’s new Northern Gateway 

The Northern Gateway has inspired a vision to create a place where local people and visitors alike can live, work, relax and shape healthy, active lifestyles for themselves and their families.

This ambition is now becoming a reality as this expansive space, which lies to the North and South of Junction 28 of the A12, forges into a new business, sport, leisure and residential destination of regional significance.

With world-class digital connectivity, easy access to the regional transport network, and high-quality urban design, the Northern Gateway will become a thriving location for living, playing, working and doing business.

Already we are proud to unveil the multi-million pound Sports Park due to open in Spring 2021.


The Northern Gateway will benefit from an integral digital network to provide ultra-fast broadband to homes and businesses.  In addition, the area will feature a carbon-cutting, Renewable Heat Network supplying properties with heat and hot water.

New tree and shrub planting will encourage biodiversity and create attractive green spaces for relaxation and leisure, opening up routes for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
